Confirmed Manchester United XI vs Liverpool – Pereira & Fosu-Mensah start

Manchester United Football Club play their fourth pre-season tour game this evening; against the old enemy, Liverpool.

Jose Mourinho’s men will be ready and raring to go, albeit only a friendly match. It’s always nice to beat your rivals, whatever the situation. United will be going all out for the victory, there is absolutely no doubt about that.

Anyway, the starting line-up has been confirmed by the club, and this is probably the most inexperienced line-up we’ve seen so far. Let’s give you the full run-down…

In goal, Lee Grant starts. The former Stoke City goalkeeper will probably be tested pretty frequently, so it’ll be a good chance to see him in action. Matteo Darmian will play as the right-back, largely due to injuries completely decimating the squad, with youngster Demetri Mitchell sitting on the opposite flank. Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Chris Smalling and Axel Tuanzebe will play as a back three.

Scott McTominay gets the nod in the midfield, he starts alongside Ander Herrera. Then you have Andreas Pereira playing, presumably on the left, with Juan Mata starting on the right. Alexis Sanchez leads the line and he’ll be in buoyant mood following an excellent performance last time out.

For the eagle-eyed amongst you, you’ll notice Fred is on the bench for the first time. However, there is no place in the squad for Eric Bailly, who picked up a knock against AC Milan…
